Keep up to date

Our launch event outlined plans for the Energy Demand Research Centre (EDRC) over the next 5 years and welcomed a keynote presentation from Bea Natzler from The Climate Change Committee, a Call to Action on Energy Demand and research summaries from our 5 Theme Leads. During our launch we addressed the unique opportunity to realise benefits from energy demand reductions in industry, businesses, transport and homes and explored the delivery of integrated technological and social change to rapidly reduce emissions, secure prosperity, reduce inequality and improve quality of life.

Our themes

Our interdisciplinary and collaborative research programme is arranged in five main research themes of Futures, Flexibility, Place, Governance and Equity. These themes cut across different scientific disciplines from engineering to social sciences, exploring the combined technological, economic and societal solutions that can deliver energy demand reductions in buildings, transport and industry.

“Our experienced team produces innovative energy demand research on industry, buildings and transport. We answer the key research question of how to deliver reductions in energy demand to tackle the challenge of climate change. We provide robust evidence that supports the reduction of energy use whilst ensuring affordable use of energy, better energy security and improved quality of life.”
